Ironically, The Sam Adams Double Bock and ALL the others are available in MO. I bought a 4 pack of Double Bock 2 days ago at the Brown Derby Wine Center in Springfield...drinks.gif


You mean to tell me I rode all that way for nuttin?!?? biggrin.gif

Honestly I only checked the places I stopped which were mostly gas stations and a couple grocery stores in Temecula.

Thanks for turning me on to your thread! Very nice... as I am sure you are eager to... do it again... and again. That is what happened to us!
One of my favorites was where you camped at Gooseneck! Having a dual sport hack we were able to go to the end...
Remember the last weekend in April, in Valley of the Gods... they fly the balloons! It is quite a sight and nice people...
Thanks again... be well...

Nice Report.
That one shot on the mountian road whre it looks like a 3 layer cake was pretty wild.
Navigating around that definitely will make you keep your focus.

Well, I'm a tad bit late to this RR party but thank you, Matt, for steering me to it! You hit some amazing wonders and your photos are beautiful! I hope one day to be able to complete my trip to Wyoming and hit a few of the places you traipsed through! B)

Fantastic Route... inspiring for my upcoming two wheeled adventures.. and beautiful photos..


What do you find the best method to use for finding those secluded quiet campsites?

Some friends and I rode from Edmonton, Alberta down the Washington, Oregon, California coast last summer. What a blast. My wife and I did the same trip in a Golf a few months before so I was keen to return to some of the same roads. That one picture of you camping at Mattole beach (I think) is ironic. We originally planned on camping there for the night but we all hammock camp. Hmmm... not a lot of trees along the sand. We almost stayed in that same covered one you were in but we joked it might be occupied by some murderer or something. :). So off we went down the road. And what roads they are - around that area, they are a little rough but still spectacular.

My favorite road on this earth is the #1 that runs West from Leggett, CA. Wow... talk about amazing.

Anyway... great ride report! Can't wait to do it again soon.

Your report reinforced for me why I'm both grateful and regretful that I don't camp. :)

Really enjoyed your report. Thank you!
